Routing is the method of selecting the best path for the data sending on the network.
The routed protocol is used in a network, this protocol work at the network layer; the routed protocols give information to the addresses of network layer. It means that it transfer the data from one point (computer) to the other point (computer) via using an addressing scheme, these protocols don't know the full path between source and the destination. These protocols are use for the defining the different field's purpose in a packet and the native format of the packet. These packets are mostly transfer from one end pc to the other end pc.
While the routing protocols are for the purpose of routing algorithm implementation, with the help of which the routing information between the networks are bartered. The dynamic tables are made by the routers via using these routing protocols.
Both of these protocols reside in the network layer. Most of the layer 3 protocols and the other that are covered above all these are the routable protocols, for example IP. While the layer 2 protocols are not routable for example, Ethernet. These protocols just have the address of link-layer that is not enough for the routing purpose.

Routing protocols selects the best path to the destination.
Examples of routing protocol would be OSPF, RIP, EIGRP or BGP.

Routed protocols can be sent over a routed network. That is because IP is a routed protocol. Meaning, IP is designed such that it can be routed over and through different networks. This is because the IP address is broken up into network and node (host) by the subnet mask. An example of a protocol that is not routed (unroutable) would be NetBIOS. It works great on a small local network (in your house) but wouldn't work well over a large network connected by dedicated network circuits or the Internet.
